I'm glad the mirror was more than kind and the performance was lovely.
This gave me chills!
I LOVE John Rutter's Requiem. It was the first major piece that my small college did in my freshman year. I was so moved by its beauty. I had not yet experienced anything that awe-inspiring; it truly touched my soul. I grew up a little in learning that work of art.
Ah! Love it. and the lipstick...perfect!
Nicely conceived piece.Really, what does matter? Just being! I scold the mirror every morning for showing me someone I do not know. ;)rel
A beautifully written magpie ... and John Rutter's Requiem moving.Joanny
Sombre deeply felt poem of anguish and despair. The holocaust memorial musical selection piece is majestic and soul-transcending. Love "Those eyes of David". It obvious one would not recall or be oblivious to what kind or colour lipstick once hearing that remarkable opus.
wow. you brought that together so nicely...it does not matter...nice magpie!

Bravo - ah the Requiem - lovely! Such profound imagery, Death, David, and 'seeing' in retrospect through the mirror to the other side, where the small things (like lipstick) really don't matter in the larger picture of life and all we have to endure (like the Holocaust). Well done.
That was very moving. Inside the music, lipstick is trivial.
Strong and vital, this piece rings with authenticity. Lovely!
Quite a different slant and chilling.Christine
What an interesting post. Lots of different images brought to mind. Lipstick is a mask. We all need a mask to cover up the hurt!Blessings, Star
Discussion of serious music, something we don't see all that often. Thanks.

Oh, PS. Thanks for the "lilies" catch on my blog. I laughed my head off (and am still chuckling) at my TIA-simulated choice of the wrong flower name. I really do know my flowers. Really, I do!
Wow. Beautiful and powerful.And, actually ... the color of your lipstick DOES matter. I'm sure you always choose the right shade.
John Rutter's Requiem, and your magpie tail, reminds us that there are more important things in life.This was so thoughtful and beautifully written.
I loved the incorporation of the Latin. This was excellent!
This line especially sort of stopped me in my tracks, made me pause and think:There is no wit in death.
Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
